Harmonic and arithmetic means

The local Utah Department of Child Service office wants to project staffing needs based on current social worker assignments. They have the number of cases per social worker for the following staff:

Mary: 25 John: 35 Ted: 15 Lisa: 45 Anna: 20

Calculate:
a. the harmonic and
b. arithmetic means

Correct result:

h =  24.101
m =  28

Solution:

n=5 h=n/(1/25+1/35+1/15+1/45+1/20)=5/(1/25+1/35+1/15+1/45+1/20)=24.101n=5 \ \\ h=n/(1/25+1/35+1/15+1/45+1/20)=5/(1/25+1/35+1/15+1/45+1/20)=24.101



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
